I was a classical player for almost 15 years before I understood the 12 bar blues. I bought a lot of books Not only is this book thorough, but fun and immediately applicable to your own blues and jazz piano playing.
Here's a tip for anyone who purchases this book: don't get discouraged by the sheer amount of information! If you get stuck on something, move on. This is the kind of book I recommend pushing through as fast as possible the first time.
Then once you know what you're in for, go through it in detail and get deeper into the areas that you really feel strongly about. With so many books on the market and so many people claiming their book is the next best thing since a diminished fifth, it's hard to figure out which books to spend your money and time on. Tim did something in this book really struck me as ground breaking. He sifted through the vast amount of blues piano information out there, decades of music and history, and distilled it into it's basic ideas.
Then Tim put those ideas into a format where the reader, you, can explore them, grow into them, and start using them in your own playing. If you're not familiar with the blues, you'll begin to see the big picture, and if you already know what you're doing, this book can expand your music into new and unexplored areas.
Classical pianists looking for ways to get into jazz and blues will also be happy with this book. One of the nicest balances Tim found here was a way to organize the information so that people who want to get an overview of what's going on with blues piano can do so without getting bogged down by the details. At the same time, pianists who savor the details can dig as deep as they want and not feel like Tim has left anything out.
If it sounds like I'm pushing this book, well, I am.
I spent many years trying to learn jazz through books and if something like Tim Richard's "Improvising Blues Piano" were around, I would have saved a lot of money looking for the right book. Tim also has a few other books, and if his other books are anything like "Improvising Blues Piano", what we've got here is a library of jazz and blues piano material to keep a player busy for a long, long, time.
I hate to sound like a broken record, but if you're looking for that one book to put you in the driver's seat of Blues Piano, this is a good choice. I think I might be being misunderstood. I'm not saying I have a kindle my wife does though , I'm saying I use the kindle player for my purchased ebooks on both my ipad and my PC.
I also view PDF scores on them too. Just like on the ipad, I can instantly google youtube etc on my PC without moving away from the piano. Some sheet music may well be badly scanned, all the music books I've brought on Amazons Kindle store have been first class crystal clear quality except one, that's very very very slightly out of focus many people wouldn't even notice , but on a large 24" monitor, it's still very very easy to read.
For a lot of them, Ebooks are the way forwards. I have the ipad3 yes it's crystal clear, it's also 10" compared to my high end 24" monitor. Blues Instruction, Classical. Book with CD.
